JUNE, 17 2022

Between 1905 and 1913, the village of Noordwijk on the Dutch coast was an important place of inspiration for the German-Jewish painter Max Liebermann (1847–1935). The works created in Noordwijk are amazing testimonies to his growing fascination with the techniques and motifs of Impressionism. With the exhibition “Coast in Sight! Max Liebermann in Noordwijk”, the Liebermann Villa on Lake Wannsee, starting June 19, 2022, explores the importance of the coastal town both for Liebermann’s artistic practice and for his personal and professional network.

Thanks to a generous private donation, the Max Liebermann Society received the oil study “Portrait of Dr. Wilhelm Bode”. The impressive portrait of the then director of the Kaiser Friedrich Museum documents Liebermann’s role as a recognized and sought-after portraitist at the beginning of the 20th century, who had numerous personalities from art, politics and industry portrayed by him. His portraits reflected the intellectual and artistic elite of Germany at the time, which included the art historian and museum director Wilhelm von Bode. The final version of his portrait is now in the possession of the National Gallery of the Berlin State Museums.

Carl Blechen

Carl Blechen (1798-1840) stands with Caspar David Friedrich among the most important German landscape painters of the early 19th century. Dramatic light and glowing colours characterise his works. Blechen was highly regarded both during his lifetime and after his death. Max Liebermann was a great admirer of Blechen. Following his appointment to president of the Berlin Academy of Arts, one of Liebermann’s first exhibitions in the Academy – in the November of 1921 – was a Blechen retrospective. The current exhibition at Wannsee explores Liebermann’s interest in Blechen and what he sought to show with his Berlin exhibition. The exhibits have been loaned by the Blechen collection of the Stiftung Fürst-Pückler-Museum Park und Schloss Branitz in Cottbus.
